Neodymium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet - Nd:YAG laser crystals has been and would continue to be the most popular lasing media for solid-state lasers. Good fluorescence lifetime, thermal conductivity and robust nature make Nd:YAG laser crystals suitable for high power continuous wave, high intensity Q-switched and single mode operation.Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the standard Nd:YAG rods with AR coating at 1064nm and also offer the custom rods or crystals upon customer's special request.
